Florida State University sophomore All-America Caroline Westrup led the field on the final day with a three-under par 67 and finished in third place in the individual standings and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in eighth place in the team standings as competition in the Lady Gator Invitational at the University of Florida Golf Course came to a close. Westrup began the final round tied for 21st in the individual standings and moved up 18 positions to earn her second top three finish of the spring 2007 season.
Florida, the host school, won the team championship for the second consecutive season as the Gators outdistanced second-place TCU by 14 strokes. Gator senior Sandra Gal earned individual medalist honors as she finished with an even par score of 210 over the 54-hole event.
